%C French version of a variant of A230862 without monotonicity.

%C No term must end in "deux", "quatre", "six", "neuf", "dix", "onze", "douze", "treize", "quatorze", "quinze", "seize", "trente", "quarante", "cinquante", "soixante", "mille", since there is no corresponding initial. The only possible endings are "zero", "un", "trois", "cinq", "(dix-)sept", "(dix-)huit", "vingt", "quatre-vingts", "cent(s)" and "million(s)" etc. This further reduces the possible initials to "n", "o", "q", "t", "s", with corresponding words: "neuf", "onze", "quatre/quatorze/quarante/quatre-vingt(s)", "trois/treize/trente" and "six/sept/seize/soixante(-dix)" (plus huge numbers like trillion, quadrillion, ...).
